Hello, sweater weather! The Tri-State is really feeling the after effects from the cold front we saw Tuesday into Wednesday. Clear skies, paired with the aforementioned arctic air mass is driving our temperatures back down. Our communities woke up to temperatures in the mid to low 30s; some areas went below the freezing mark. This morning's low of 35° marked the River City's coolest in a week and a half.
Despite the cooler temperatures, there should be plenty of sunshine in the Ohio Valley through Friday to keep our spirits up. As we head into our afternoon, temperatures will be reaching the upper 50s and lower 60s. Tonight will be another cold one. Lows are expected to drop to the low 40s under partly cloudy skies. We'll be watching out for a dry cold front to push through overnight. This will make way to cool highs in the mid 50s for Friday.
Don't expect a washout this weekend, but rain chances will be likely Saturday into Sunday morning. Showers will be associated with a warm front moving through the Tri-State Saturday night accompanied by another cold front Sunday morning. Highs will stay in the low to mid 60s before dropping Monday.
